How to Prepare to Host a Corporate Meeting

When it comes time to prep for your corporate meeting’s location, there are a few steps to follow to make the event run smoothly, well before anyone books a flight or hotel room. A good corporate meeting helps to bring people together, build upon professional relationships, and strengthen business bonds, all while working toward the same goal. With that in mind, here are a few tried and true steps to take when planning a corporate get-together for your team, company, or executives, and why the venue matters.

1. Establish the event’s purpose. Setting goals and objectives before the planning process begins will point you in the direction the meeting will take. For example, if the goal of this off-site is to build up trust and morale, then select a more casual backdrop for your meeting – maybe even a spot that has engaging activities.

2. Decide on your target audience. Who you invite is important. Will your event be a combination of clients and employees? Is this event executives only? Will you mix upper management with other personnel? The people you invite will help you with the first step of working toward a purpose.

3. Set a budget. This will give you and your team parameters of what kind of venue, space, or hotel you can afford. Remember to look for hidden extras – gratuity, added rentals, catering costs, etc. and get all expenses from your venue in writing.

4. Choose a theme. Believe it or not, the city where you land might help you come up with a common theme for your event. For instance, if your company is kicking off more green initiatives, no better city than Seattle to play host to that new mindset!

5. Have a logistics outline. Finding the balance between having enough for your business associates to do during the day compared to overpacking their schedules can be tricky. The meeting space you select might help determine activities like dining or entertainment.

6. Lastly, choose the venue. The space you select will bring all these professional visions to life. Your venue of choice should play into all the qualities listed above to the best of its abilities.
